Making brownies does not have to be difficult!  

Next to cookies, brownies are the next easiest baking recipes for beginners. In fact, brownies might be even easier than cookies.

There are a few essential tips you need to make the ultimate brownie:

  • • Line your baking pan with parchment paper to make it easy to remove from the pan.   
  • • Feel free to add chocolate chips, chopped nuts, and even candy chunks!
  • • Always underbake, never overbake.  

If brownies are your dessert kryptonite, you’ll love the fact that these brownie recipes are easy to make and each requires less than 10 ingredients to make.
